"In the last few matches Juventus have had good matches with excellent results, also not conceding a goal and today I would have been angry if we had suffered one. We made mistakes in the Champions League, managing the matches badly, while in the league we had alternating results. Now, the team has regrouped, obtaining results, suffering and winning, the boys must be thanked. There are no regrets, we have always worked hard, there are moments of difficulty and they happen during a season, we faced them all together knowing that we had to get up again; we haven't solved everything: only the first part of the season is over. We'll look to recover both Paul Pogba and Federico Chiesa completely in the upcoming friendlies, everything is an opportunity for everyone, for example the lack of players has given Fabio Miretti, Nicolò Fagioli and Samuel Iling-Junior the possibility to have a chance and they have taken them and given everyone a lift, because they have ability and technique. Angel Di Maria did very well tonight, he has out-of-the-ordinary technique and games are often different from the 60th minute onwards, so sometimes it takes technique whilst other times physicality, and having changes available like Chiesa, Di Maria and Leandro Paredes is important. Chiesa made the final goal by sacrificing himself and putting an assist into the middle, he is a player who is finding himself and who needs game rhythm. Juan Cuadrado was stopped for two days, his knee bothered him but he made himself available to play. Bremer and Danilo are excellent players, like those of the whole defensive department, thinking of Leonardo Bonucci, Daniele Rugani and Federico Gatti - who also did well tonight, as taking a yellow card early on isn't easy. There are all the possibilities to have a good second part of the season, we take it a step at a time."
"We have talked too much since the beginning of the season, now we have to respond with facts, looking at who is in front of us. We have the desire to fight on every ball and help our teammate, which is the secret to winning. We are doing well but we have to come back energised after the break, I am convinced that we will prepare well and recover some of the injuries,"
"I trained a lot, I worked hard and I also followed a good diet. The coach never lost his patience to explain many technical things to me, on the movements, on how to attack space, all this then leads to a good performance when you take to the field. Tonight, we knew we were going to have to attack the space. It's too early to talk about the Scudetto, now let's think about giving 100% to every match."
"It's nice to be back out there, to go back to the routine as before, even after the game. It has been almost 10 endless months for me, in August it seemed close to the finish line, but I had new problems that delayed my return. With the people who love me and who are close to me I got out of difficult moments and the rest was the necessary path to regain my condition and confidence on the pitch. I would have preferred to be playing at the World Cup, but I will use the break to do the prep that I didn't do in August and then help the team in January. We didn't have a good time as a team, especially in the Champions League, but I think we got back into place in the league and since January we will see, because we have a group of fantastic guys who want to make themselves available to the coach, I think that from now on we will have a great future ahead of us, we got ourselves out of a really bad moment, we showed we were coming out of it and the most important thing is the cohesion within this group. We all wanted to get out of it because Juventus didn't deserve to be represented like that on the pitch."
